This was 2 coats of an older franken I made 'Curtains', I sponged on another franken 'Mud Bath; When it was dry i used a mate top coat. Using a dotting tool, I added dots of varying size over the sponged area.
I do not own a slow drying clear polish, even plain dollar store clear polish dried to fast for me to try the matte/shiny looks I want to do. For this look I used the Color Rama clear polish, and that dried a little to fast for me. But I did not have any clear 'polish strings' ;
This is supposed to be my my earth day nails, I thought I would try to do a homage to the small animals of the world that sometimes get displaced from urban sprawl - (how eco-conscious of me ♥)

..... and this is the franken polish 'Mud Bath' I sponged down the center of my nails (I tried to keep it in the center)
